The Belarusian town of Polack will hold its Light Festival for the first time this autumn thanks to support from the EU-funded “PubLiCity” project. Light installations will be installed in streets in the city centre and night city tours, workshops, flash mobs and contests will also take place during the event.

 

The organisers announced a contest for young architects, in which each winner will receive between €1000 and €1500 to create and set up a light installation for the festival. Requirements for concepts and details of the contest are available at http://polack-light-fest.tilda.ws/arch-contest. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2018.

 

Light Festival will be the final event of the EU-funded “PubLiCity” project, implemented within the “Covenant of Mayors Demonstration Projects” programme. As part of the project, new energy-efficient public lighting has been installed in 16 streets in the city.

 

Covenant of Mayors – Demonstration Projects (CoM-DeP) are part of the EU4Energy initiative. EU4Energy covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the long term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
